An analysis using image and geometrical theory of diffraction techniques for calculating the elevation-plane pattern of radial infinitesimal current elements mounted near or on perfectly conducting cylinders of finite length is presented. The radiation problem is resolved into two components, the dipole and the edge contributions. The computed patterns are compared with experimental results since boundary-value solutions are not available. Good agreement between theory and experiment is obtained.
